When presidents attack

Our president embracing the Brazilian presidentI couldn't resist posting the picture above, from the front page of the LA Times. Doesn't it look like President Bush has pounced on an unsuspecting prey? Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva doesn't look very comfortable. Bush got an unfriendly welcome in Brazil, so I wonder if this an attempt to make him more popular by tying him to Lula. Or more likely, this is an attempt to make Lula less popular in Brazil. If so, it is about as subtle as the poison used to kill that Russian spy in London.
